Now, I don't know about you, but I’ve always wanted a ring that fit perfectly; most rings seem either too large or too small. With future technology, we shall use the power of the laser cutter to make this...The Ring Sizer of Perfection! Let’s follow along, shall we?
Step 1: Tools & Materials
Step 2: Measure Your Finger
Mark the paper where the green arrow points (where one end of the paper touches).
Step 3: Measure the Paper
Step 4: Convert Circumference to Diameter
5.75 circumference x 0.3183 = 1.83 diameter.
Now, we know we want the holes in our ring sizer to be based on a 1.83cm diameter.
Step 5: Make the Ring Sizer File
If you’re really picky about your ring size, you could increase in increments of 0.1cm.
If you’re really really pick about your ring size, then perhaps you should measure your finger with an electron microscope.
But that’s neither here nor there.
Now...onward! Let's get to lasering!
Step 6: Laser Your Scrap Wood
Btw, I made this ring sizer at TechShop...the land of making ideas become REALITY. @______@
Step 7: Try on the Ring Sizer
If it’s too loose, goodbyyyyye ring, i.e. it'll slip off.
If it’s too tight, goodbyyyyyyyye finger, i.e.you’ll get gangrene.
The size that fit me best was 1.78cm. In the future, when I make rings on the laser cutter, I'll know that this will probably be the best size for me. All right, thanks for reading!
Now get out there...go on...make some beautiful things.
I'll be here, dreaming up new adventures...
